Buckle up, we're about to take a test drive to find out which Texas vehicles are the safest and most dangerous. A brand new study analyzed the top three car brands in each state in America reporting the most fatal car crashes over a ten-year period. Using that as the base information for this NHTSA study, researchers were able to reveal which brands were among the safest and least safe vehicles in America.

I have always lived by the thought that bigger is better, and when it comes to vehicles, bigger is safest in my opinion (that's why I drive a three-quarter-ton Dodge pickup truck). However, that does not seem to be the case with smaller vehicles and SUVs.

These are the safest auto brands in Texas, according to a decade's worth of fatal crashes:

  1. Subaru
  2. Audi
  3. Mercedes-Benz

Most dangerous brands for Texas drivers:

  1. Dodge
  2. Mitsubishi
  3. Chevrolet

These are the findings according to the Glass Doctor and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. When it comes to pick-up trucks, Dodge and Ford battle it out every year for the highest safety rating in the U.S. Recently, Dodge slipped in the ratings due to an airbag recall.
